We create the world of technology. Join us!
Technical Engineers work across many areas throughout the company, from Technical Development to Logistics to Production. Challenges of technical and organizational nature await them everywhere.
What department or program is right for you?
From the first drawing to the final tests. This is how we would describe the work of Technical Development, which plays a significant role in the creation of each new ŠKODA AUTO model.
The backbone of the entire department are teams of enthusiastic professionals, who deal with the various stages of car development. Whether it is the initial assignment, planning, design, conceptual or actual development, or final crash and other various tests – we always use cutting-edge processes and technologies.
This department is responsible for making the production of each model as smooth as possible. It all starts with the logistics of individual materials, parts and components and ends with their assembly and installation. That is not all, though.
The year 2015 saw ŠKODA AUTO create the first Industry 4.0- focused job position in the Production & Logistics area, and the Company continues digitising the whole department. We design and implement new technologies for vehicle electronics activation while transferring outputs of extensive analyses to vehicle assembly operations, as well as, for example, to processes that take place in our new paint shop. We are proud to be using state-of-the-art technologies while constantly creating new positions that cover a really wide range of applications in various fields of expertise.
Production is one of ŠKODA AUTO´s key departments: without Production we would not be able to give birth to any of our models, whether the ENYAQ e-car, the new OCTAVIA or the KAROQ, one of our popular SUVs.
Besides Mladá Boleslav, modern ŠKODA car manufacturing plants are to be found also in Kvasiny and Vrchlabí. Each of our plants provides a clean and highly modern environment in which automation and high-precision work put in by our employees go hand in hand. Employees always come first in our Company, and although we use a wide array of automated machinery, the human factor remains the most important thing.
BETWEEN BUGGY RACING AND BASKETBALL
Formerly a motorcycle racer, he now satisfies his urge for adrenaline by driving a buggy. When Petr Stanislav is not busy on-boarding new colleagues at the press shop, he is most likely driving out to Poland, or at least to Pardubice, seeking out adventure sports. He says he has been drawn to petrol all his life, and that’s why he has remained loyal to his passion despite a motorcycle accident, in which he suffered a permanent injury. How has he adapted to the new way of life and how did he acquire a job at the car manufacturer?
WE ARE BUILDING THE MOST PROGRESSIVE DEVELOPMENT CENTRE IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC
It took him a while to decide whether to become a mechanical engineer or an architect. And although he opted for architecture in the end, Matěj Vydra collaborates with mechanical engineers every single day, since he is in charge of investments and constructional development of the ŠKODA AUTO technical development campus. Apart from strategic topics related to the company’s digital transformation, he is also involved in the efforts to increase the region’s attractiveness in collaboration with the ŠKODA AUTO Foundation Fund (Nadační fond ŠKODA AUTO). As a result, the construction of a new cycling infrastructure began in April, for example.
Business trips aren't just about the number of kilometres traveled, but also about new ways of working. 🌎 ŠKODA's Purchasing Project Manager Václav Březina is currently in Pune, India, where he is in charge of managing the Superb, Octavia and Kodiaq projects. "Oral agreements are only part of success here. We must confirm everything via email and check whether we understand one another or not. Though all within the factory works fine, Indians are not very punctual." This is one of the local ways of working that Václav had to get used to in his first months. But at the same time, he adds: "People in India care about personal relationships a lot more. We know each other, call people by their first names, go for tea, shake hands, or speak a couple of words with one another." Check out our post to learn what other surprises were waiting for Václav in India, and what he misses most about the Czech Republic. ⬇️
Dear Facebook Community, We are dismayed by the military attack on Ukraine and sincerely hope for the swift cessation of hostilities and a speedy return to diplomacy following international law.

I HAVE TO STAND BY WHAT I SAY 100%
He compares media communication to a board game with pieces and clearly set rules. He himself has been on both sides of the board. The current ŠKODA AUTO press officer for the Czech market studied journalism at the Faculty of Social Sciences at Charles University, and before entering the world of PR, he gained experience as a sports journalist. After all, sports are one of his greatest passions. But it’s not only on the football field that he feels a real surge of adrenaline, but also in crisis communication, his favourite discipline in the field of public relations. What does the job of the press officer of the country’s largest company – who reached his current position at the age of a mere twenty-seven years – involve?
HEALTH CARE AND SELF-DEVELOPMENT
To do a job that interests you and be fairly paid for it? Yes, that’s fine. But what about getting something on top of that – the opportunity to develop one’s self and other advantages that save you both money and time. That’s even better, right? Peep at how ŠKODA AUTO considers benefits.
